Jacob

After being here for one year, I have found that I really appreciate the small class sizes. It feels more one on one with the professors and keeps everyone closer together. Overall I think this is a great place to start our getting your transfer or associates. There are so many great programs this college has to offer. We have a great mechanical and technical 2 year degree that throws you right into the work force. Overall a great school to attend.

Laura

This is a great Community College with lots of faculty involvement. The class content is just as great as a large college but cheaper. A great place to go back to school to as a transistion between High School and a four year college. There are lots of places to study and the classes are often small enough to get to know most of your class mates.

Keely

Mt Hood doesn't have the best Art program since it is a starter college after all, but other than that it is a nice college and there are many different types of clubs and programs to choose from. There is also a study center that is offered for students who need help with class work and there are study groups too.

Brittany

Mt hood is decent for the price. Some departments are lacking (the math department for example is hard to find a good professor for, with decent hours). The library is nice for studying but a little on the small side. Bathrooms are a hit or miss, and don't even get me started on the parking situation. However, Mt Hood Community College is about what I expected it to be. It is very diverse, but is somewhat affordable, and now even has my favorite coffee place on campus!

  12. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    I think Mt. Hood Community College is best known for earlier years when the Mt. Hood Festival of Jazz was held there. But currently I think it's regarded as a competing college campus in diversity and boasts programs that you can find no where else on the west coast, like it's Funeral Services Program. Named for the beautiful volcano in it's background, and just minutes away from the Columbia River Gorge, this school couldn't be in a more ideal location.
